A scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Pb superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) fabricated in our lab at the end of a sharp quartz tip. This special type of nanometer-scale SQUID is intended for scanning magnetometry applications.
Bike Tour 2018
On Friday, May 11th, 2018, the group went on a day-long bicycle tour of nearby Alsace, France.
Davide, Martino, and the Probe
Prof. Poggio and Ph.D. student Davide Cadeddu are shown here with our custom-made 3He scanning probe microscope.
Nanowires as Scanning Force Sensors
A new type of atomic force microscope (AFM) uses nanowires as tiny sensors. Unlike standard AFM, the device with a nanowire sensor enables measurements of both the size and direction of forces.
SNI Video 2014
In December 2014, the group was featured in a Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) video on the Masters and Ph.D. school on nanoscience here at the University of Basel. (Video)
